DescriptionVerses about the favor (grace, acceptance). As we seek Him and obey Him, God bestows favor upon us with men, with leaders, and with the Lord himself.
12 For you bless the righteous, O Lord;
you cover him with favor as with a shield.
5 For his anger is but for a moment,
and his favor is for a lifetime.
Weeping may tarry for the night,
but joy comes with the morning.
10 Foreigners shall build up your walls,
and their kings shall minister to you;
for in my wrath I struck you,
but in my favor I have had mercy on you.
9 Fools mock at the guilt offering,
but the upright enjoy acceptance.
2 A good man obtains favor from the Lord,
but a man of evil devices he condemns.
27 Whoever diligently seeks good seeks favor,
but evil comes to him who searches for it.
3 Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you;
bind them around your neck;
write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 So you will find favor and good success
in the sight of God and man.
15 In the light of a king's face there is life,
and his favor is like the clouds that bring the spring rain.
2 Corinthians 9:8
8 And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.
16 And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.
6 to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.
23 Whoever rebukes a man will afterward find more favor
than he who flatters with his tongue.
15 When the turn came for Esther the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her as his own daughter, to go in to the king, she asked for nothing except what Hegai the king's eunuch, who had charge of the women, advised. Now Esther was winning favor in the eyes of all who saw her.
